The last 2014 free Kent County Farm Bus Tour will be held on Friday, Nov. 14th from 9 – 2:30 and includes a free lunch. Visit local farms and processor. Learn how agriculture impacts and supports our local economy and relies on environmental stewardship. We have more than 3,000 Kent County agricultural jobs, providing a market value of more than $2.3 million. Maintaining local farmland helps support our renowned farm to table restaurant movement, keeps urban environments dense, and maintains property values.
